I often hear people frustrated with aging. It does take a certain amount of grace and, well, courage. A friend asked me an interesting question last week. “What can I do to get rid of my forehead wrinkles?” she asked, pressing and rubbing her forehead in circles, as if she could wipe them off. Later that day a customer asked me the exact same question. Synchronicity.
My answer for both was this: Sorry, your wrinkles are not going away. The good news is, facial wrinkles can be softened and diminished by using the right nutrients and protection. Start by hydrating the body inside and outside:
Use a good quality moisturizer
Use zinc based sunscreen
Apply vitamin C and/or hyaluronic acid serum topically
Take collagen peptides internally
Add an Omega 7 fatty acid supplement, I highly recommend New Chapter
Do all of these daily, if possible.
Collagen peptides, when taken in powder form, support our skin, hair, nails, joints and connective tissue, feeding and strengthening, as collagen production slows down as we age.
Throughout the day, remember to relax your face, run your fingers through your hair and give it a pull. This relaxes the scalp. Shrug and drop your shoulders a few times, releasing built up tension. All of these will soften the face, and with that reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Interested in treating yourself to a facelift at home? Yes, please. Check out this video I found.
